Welcome to The Sutton Academy

A welcome from the new Principal.

It is with great pleasure that I have taken up post as Principal of The Sutton Academy, and I am looking forward to what I believe will be a busy and exciting year.

Having just completed my first week I can see that the academy is a very special learning community. I have been made to feel welcome by governors, staff and students. The potential of The Sutton Academy is clearly outstanding and I will work very closely with both staff and students to ensure that it provides the excellent educational experience that our students deserve. I will quickly build on the existing strengths of the academy and put in place the improvements that still need to be made.

I am determined to ensure that the curriculum is academically rigorous and that we aim for the highest standards in all that we do.

We will provide a stimulating learning experience which challenges and excites students and it will extend beyond the classroom. Students will have the opportunity to take part in enrichment activities that will see them develop into well rounded and confident young people.

Through a culture and ethos of high aspiration we will strive to provide an education that will allow each individual student to succeed and thrive in the academy and in time be able to contribute to an increasingly competitive society.

Jette Burford, Chair of Governors at The Sutton Academy, writes “I am delighted that Alison Sherman has joined The Sutton Academy as Principal. Mrs Sherman is a very experienced Principal with a proven track record of high performance and together with the senior team and the Governors she will be working hard to realise the vision of seeing The Sutton Academy outstanding”.
